Race Plates

As a member of BMX, you’ll need a race plate, which is attached to the front of your bike.

For the allocation of your Race Plate number, the process depends upon your State – please see below:

Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Northern Territory, Queensland, Tasmania

If you are a member of the above states, please speak to your Club’s Registrar or a Committee Member to select a race plate number within your club.

In SA and VIC, you will be notified of your race plate number within 1-2 weeks of becoming a member through email. The email will advise your Race Plate Number, the colour of your race plate and other important information about being a BMXA member in SA and VIC.  Your race plate number will also be updated on your BMXA member profile.
